Yes, correct. It may be that full computers (CPU plus supporting hardware and BIOS, etc) that are destined to be Windows machines are configured in such a way that the backward compatibility is either impossible or a distinct road-block. My understanding comes from an IT person instructed to remove Win10 from incoming computers because the business in question still needs to run Win8.X for certain legacy applications. When he tried to do that, the machines just froze up....don't even know if he was able to go into reverse and put Win10 on them again (). But one of the main proposals for why this lock up occurred was due to the changeover in 2017. --> https://www.theverge.com/2016/1/16/10780876/microsoft-windows-support-policy-new-processors-skylake
